Q: How do you search for dups before posting deals?

The last couple of deals I've posted have been dups, even though I searched DP before posting (typing in search bar, going to front page, new deals page, deals page for specific site, etc.) and I never saw the dup until it was brought to my attention.  And submitting the deal never gave me the dup alert. I don't want to dup other members' deals...they should definitely get credit for posting first.  Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks!

Here is the mods way of checking for dups. If I was to search for a XBOX 360 deal on amazon.com then the best way to search it is this

Click on the deal tab on top
Type in "site:amazon.com XBOX 360"

I have trouble with this too! Kinda hoping the search feature will eventually get more helpful

I have also searched and still managed to dup until I saw that the other deal was heating up or on the front page. That's why I really appreciate when others who happened to see both deals post and who was first let me know so I don't put my foot in it :)

well if the deal was the same price you could type in the price, and if no deal with the same price shows up you do have a different deal.
